I've been eating primal for about a month now (and have been reducing carbs to roughly 50g-75g/day for the past few weeks).
1) Has anyone felt a near allergic reaction if ingesting any form of processed sugar? Itchiness? Swelling?
I had a serving of "meat jun," which is local speak for meat marinaded in soy sauce and sugar (a lot), then later dipped in egg batter and fried. Within the hour my body began to get itchy and generally uncomfortable. Not to the point of hives or anything, but I definitely did not feel well. Is this normal?
2) Being it roughly my 3rd week into eating low carbs (50-75g/day), is it normal to feel a little low energy? I read somewhere (forget source) there's a transitional period from a "typical" diet to a high fat/high protein/low carb diet.
Appreciate any thoughts/stories!
